Creve Coeur Approves Trash Extension

The Creve Coeur City Council has approved a contract extension for trash collection with Allied Waste through 2014, with a possible extension through June 2017.

City Administrator Mark Perkins said the contract will save the city 10 percent of what it's paying now because recycling has helped cut costs.

Under the contract, residents will pay $20.20 per month for curbside and rear trash collection. One resident who spoke up at the council meeting to object to the contract questioned the cost. Stan Edelstein, a retired accountant, said that eliminating the rear trash collection would mean residents would pay only $14.62 per household.
